This is our take on a classic English dish. They are rich, hearty and full of flavor, plus they’re fairly easy to prepare. The perfect complement to our early-spring snow storm this weekend!

English Style Pasties

Filling:

1/2 onion, chopped
1 Tbs poblano pepper, diced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced

2 stalks celery, sliced thinly
1 carrot, diced
1 C grated cabbage (grate carrot if out of cabbage)
1 potato, cubed

3/4 lb beef, ground into hamburger

1/2 C beef broth
salt & pepper to taste

1 egg, mixed with 1 tsp water, for egg wash

Crust

Though easy to make from scratch, I use Pillsbury roll-out pie crusts. They come 2 to a package, and cut in half they’re just the right size!

Dipping Sauce

1 C mayo
1 tsp curry powder
2 tsp dried dill
1 Tbs lemon juice

Mix thoroughly and chill until served.

Preparation

Fry the onion in butter until nicely browned. Add garlic and pepper towards end.

In a separate skillet fry the beef.

Mix in beef, broth and veggies and cook for a few minutes. Thicken with corn starch mixture if necessary.

Cut pie dough into 4 pieces.

Fill 1/2 of each crust and fold over, crimping the edges with a fork.

Spread the egg wash on each and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 35 minutes.

Serve with a dipping sauce and enjoy!
